Yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me
TGIF! Friday is the day new movies open at the theatre here. Tonight was the newest Pirates of the Caribbean. I usually avoid the Friday night movies because they are so popular, and you generally have to arrive an hour early to get a seat. Of course, I was invited, and went early anyway, and of course it was a long movie. So needless to say, I have little time to make my daily post. Although things have been quite busy here for a while, I'm anticipating a big slowdown the next week. I'll be seeking out smaller jobs to do, but during the brief respite it will be tough to fight the thought that I'm wasting time here that could be better spent somewhere else. There are some advantages and disadvantages to having such a narrowly focused job like I do. The weather has been consistenly hot, hot, hot here, although we've been hearing about heat waves back home as well. At least we have air conditioning! One month into summer, we're hoping maybe the temperatures might start creeping down a little. But it'll probably be a month before we notice it. More news tomorrow, when I'll talk about concrete.
